E-learning course on Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC) - version 2.0
The new free course offers a comprehensive yet readily accessible source of guidance on using the IPC four functions and related tools and procedures specifically focused on acute food insecurity.
The course consists of 11 lessons, of approximately 15 to 150 minutes duration each, and it is based on the IPC technical Manual version 2.0, which was originally published in 2012. It is self-paced learning and uses a variety of learning methods to get to grips with each topic: storytelling, illustrative case studies, interactive self-assessment tests and practice exercises. The course also includes glossary, background readings and relevant online resources.
The course has been developed in the framework of IPC Certification Programme which consists of three certification levels. The course is not a certification requirement but will help undertake the IPC Level 1 Test that is one of the key requirements to get the Level 1 IPC Analyst Certificate. A direct link to the IPC Level 1 Test is included in this course platform.

The course is currently available in English. French and Spanish versions are under development.
The IPC Global Partnership thanks FAO, in particular the Capacity Development Unit of Office for Partnerships, Advocacy and Capacity Development. FAO, in its position as IPC Global Partner, has developed the full course and made it free on its e-learning centre as part of the "Improved Global Governance for Hunger Reduction Programme”, which is funded by the European Union (EU) and implemented by FAO.
